From my house, I can see birds, and beach, fields and forest, sunrises and sunsets, full moons and stars, and I wish the same for you. A kind reminder to sometimes raise your eyes and look around, see what there is, a beautiful life!
A large black and white linocut looks deceptively simple, but can actually be right there with the most difficult, to make an image really work when you only have 2 "colors" means you have to look at things in a different way. I use a fantastic paper, crisp white with a velvety surface, and the best ink. There is a little "defect", I did not turn the "s" in House , so I had to cut it out and replace it with a correct facing letter, that is why there is a little white edge around..... I decided to keep it as part of the personality of the print.
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist,
and I sign, title and number each print.
"Life is beautiful" is printed in a short edition of 20 prints in black,
you might not receive the number seen in the photograph.
The linocut itself measures 16" x 23", (40cm x 60cm )
and the beautiful piece of clear and crisp white Zerkall
printmaking paper measures 27" x 19", (70cm x 48cm)
Linocuts are wonderful graphic pieces of printmaking, that can make for a real focal point in your room, you are so welcome to ask me about framing advice etc. The home interior photos might not be entirely to scale.
I'll mail your linocut to you protected by tissuepaper and cellophane, it comes with a flier explaining what a linocut is.
If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!
Thanks for looking and welcome back.
